Default Traction Control

I have searched Traction Control not working but nothing I find fits my problem. My 2001 LE has ABS and Traction.

ABS works fine, tested in wet and get the stuttering of brakes going on/off etc. However, there is a junction near us that whenever it rains and we pull away the wheels spin, no effort to correct with traction control, no lights on dash, just seems to ignore the wheel spins. If I switch of Traction the light comes on the dash as expected.

Any ideas?

Default Re: Traction Control

Been a while since my traction control kicked in, but if I recall correctly, it took quite a bit of wheelspin before the hammering of traction control came in - a brief bout of wheelspin would not trigger mine.
If ABS is working, it would seem TRAC should also...
